Out now: Leonard A Steverson’s review of Carla P Davis’ book “Girls and Juvenile Justice” #sssi #bookreview #sociology

Leonard A. Stevenson writes in his review of Davis’s book “Girls and Juvenile Justice” would be a fine ancillary to upper division courses in sociology and criminology, especially those involving symbolic interactionism, juvenile delinquency, institutional correc- tions, gender inequality, racial inequality, and other topics. The author’s clear descrip- tion of the processes involved in her research (another major strength of the book) also makes it useful for courses in qualitative research methods. Outside the aca- demic setting, the book’s minimal use of abstract jargon allows the interested lay public a glimpse into the lives of people at the intersection of race, gender, age, and stigmatized status.”Stevenson’s review review of the book has been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction.
